WPP global production outfit Hogarth has appointed Elyse Epstein Chief Operating Officer for North America.
She was actually hired in April, but the firm waited until now to announce it. Companies often do that, just to make sure both sides are happy with the arrangement before going public with an announcement.
Six months later, it seems, both sides feel it’s a good fit.
Previously Epstein was managing director, program management at sibling agency Ogilvy, a role she held for about three years. Earlier she served at Rapp and R/GA in New York and before that she’s credited with helping to establish R/GA’s London operation.
Hogarth has also promoted Tania Sethi to Chief Production Officer, North America. She’s a six-year veteran of the company who previously served as global production director and before that was an executive producer.
